COHEN--Ellen Eisenstadt. Giving, loving and selfless is how Ellen, who was lost to us far too soon on April 4, 2014, lived her life. Wife and life-partner of Herb, mother of Sharon and Bill Levin, Steven and Lisa Melmed Cohen and Rich Cohen and Jessica Medoff, grandmother of Matt, Madeline, David, Ethan, Emma, Elias, Hannah, Aaron, Nate and Micah, sister-in-law of Renee Blumenthal. Born on September 24, 1938, in the Midwood Section of Brooklyn, transplanted to Libertyville and Glencoe, Illinois, and most recently a resident of Delray Beach, Florida, Ellen was a graduate of NYU and spent her life as the business partner of Herb. But Ellen's true life work was being a support and inspiration to her family and all those who were lucky enough to know her. Her kindness and generosity were boundless. There was nothing that Ellen possessed that she would not willingly give away -- including her time, her compassion, her jewelry and her dinner if it would provide solace to another person. She enriched us all, and her absence will forever leave a hole in our hearts. Those wishing to honor Ellen's life are encouraged to contribute to the Bronfman Center of NYU, 7 East 10th Street, New York, NY. Funeral Services to be held at Riverside Memorial Chapel, 180 West 76th Street, New York, 11:45am, on Sunday, April 6, 2014.
